Do you want to make a difference in the lives of youth of color? A need exists within our country to reach out to youth and young adults in recovery, and/or in need of recovery who have been involved in the Juvenile Justice System, or who are re-entering their communities from a juvenile justice institution. The Council of Southeast Pennsylvania and PRO-ACT are implementing SAMHSA's Justice Involved Peer Mentor Training. This peer mentor training aims to reach this group of youth though a cadre of young adult peer recovery coaches who can work with, and educate youth of color consistent with the goals of president Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative.

Areas addressed in this training include (but not limited to):
- The impact of trauma on the behavioral health of youth
- Racial disparities in the criminal justice system
- The opioid crisis

 This two day FREE training will be held on Friday May 19th and Saturday May 20th. Training.
